Please stop showing Pop-ups to remind me upgrading to the latest MacOS when I open it

Solved!

Please stop showing Pop-ups to remind me upgrading to the latest MacOS when I open it

As an old MacOS(Catalina, 10.15.7) user, I do have reason keeping my system version at 10.15.7 cause My Mac runs on Intel Chip and once it updates to a higher system version it would run slowly, which is also the reason I downgrade it and stay at 10.15.7.

But now, Spotify App becomes annoying since latest update, for it shows up a pop-up saying"Please Update Your System Version Or You'll Never Use It Anymore", At EVERY TIME OF START OF APP.

COME ON, Spotify, I though it's enough to show it for once to let me know the message(Anyway, I still would keep my present version!), why you code the programmers showing it again and again!

I do wish you gays have some methods to close it or teach me how to disable auto-update of Spotify, it really feels annoying when pop-up shows and stops you from using the app for few seconds.

Hi @DavidChen

 

Thanks for letting us know about this!

 

We completely understand why you would want to remain at your current version, as updating may result in slower performance on your end. Apologies for the notification that opens on startup, it's meant to be informative, but we realize receiving it on each startup may prove irritating. 

As your device is running an old OS, be advised that support for such versions of your iOS and of the Spotify app will be getting less and less support, as they gradually shift outside of out scope of support. 

As a workaround we would suggest using the Web Player, It can help you retain your experience without the strain on your device. 

 

Hope this helps out,

Thank you so much for your reply with great enthusiasm!

Well, Web Player may be a good choice, but given that I prefer desktop version of Spotify, I'd rather use it for a time until my next new mac.

However, could you please send back the message to IT department that please don't let pop-ups appear every time when i open it or at least give us an option to close it in settings, after all, I'm also a Premium member of Spotify and I really love this music software.

Can't appreciate more for your generously reply! 

Hi, I've written a little AppleScript code to be saved as an app. Running it will just activate Spotify and escape the message. (So you just have to launch this applet instead of launching Spotify.) You might want to adapt the delay here set to 5 sec in order to match your own situation. HTH.

on run
tell application "Spotify" to activate

delay 5 -- = 5 seconds of delay, to be adjusted if needed

try
tell application "System Events" to set visible of application process "Spotify" to true
tell application "System Events" to key code 53 -- = ESC
end try

end run

Thank you so much for your hard working, but somehow I don't know why it still dont work, I paste the code into the AppleScript and attempt to run it, but spotify still pops-up, maybe the key code53 is not right?

Hi! Sorry for the delay but I was off for some days.

And sorry it doesn't work at your end. A complete list of Apple Script key codes is available at https://eastmanreference.com/complete-list-of-applescript-key-codes. And "confirms" 53 as the keycode for Escape. Have you tried setting the delay to 7 or 8?
